The NFL trade deadline is next Tuesday and it is really anyone's guess as to how the Patriots will approach it.
Sitting at 2-4, they could very well be sellers, or they could look to add a piece or two not only for this year, but the coming years.
According to Albert Breer of MMQB, the Patriots have said to other teams they’d listen on almost anyone.
As for Stephon Gilmore, teams believe his restructure before the start of the season was a sign that this year will be his last in New England and depending on how Sunday's game goes, perhaps he could be traded before Tuesday's deadline.
The report implies how Sunday's game goes could determine how the team approaches the deadline and if they will be buyers or sellers.
